We're well into 2022, and with the month of March, we expect rising temperatures, a little rain, and the slow trickle of seasonal tourists returning home.

- Where: Adolph and Rose Levis Jewish Community Center
- Cost: $60 per day, per camper
Over the past few years, we've seen more families choosing short Summer-style camps during lapses in school time. Spring Break is a very different puzzle for families of young children to handle. Rather than the raucous freedom of a young collegian, families living in Boca Raton with students in K-5 need a place to put their children while they work the tail end of the tourism season. For 4 days, visit the JCC and know your children will have a blast while you work, enjoying a full slate of activities such as arts & crafts, sports, games, swimming, and outdoor play.
Valentine's Day can be a... polarizing holiday. We're all searching for love, and the feeling we get when we're around the people we love. For whatever reason it may be, not all of us are happily married and planning our Boca Raton catamaran cruise for couples. Valentine's Day doesn't have to be exclusionary! For the single people out there (like your humble blog author), there's plenty to do and places to be in Boca Raton and beyond! Here are some of the choices for Valentine's Day singles events in Boca Raton and near you!

Perhaps the most purposefully raucous of our Valentine's Day singles events near Boca Raton, there's always something to do and ways to turn up on Clematis St. Starting at the Myers Lounge, at the epicenter of Downtown West Palm Beach, this bar crawl will build upon the standard set in its inaugural year, and surely be an adventure for those looking to spice up the night.

We're always happy to feature Painting With A Twist, the forerunner and standard bearer for the tipsy painting industry. Following this model, we now see several unrelated industries (such as the Tipsy Salon Bar) offering a glass of wine with your desired activity. We've seen it in countless romantic comedies, and even though its cliche, there's a reason our palates (and palettes) are so delightfully intertwined.
- Where: The Waterstone Resort - 999 E. Camino Real, Boca Raton, FL 33432
- When: Monday, February 14th 12 PM - 2 PM
- Cost: $99 (adult)...
The SUPER BOWL is back! And while the usual favorite teams of Boca Raton visitors and residents - the Dolphins, Jets, Giants, and beyond are nowhere near Super Bowl contention, we're all pumped to enjoy the great American spectacle regardless. On Sunday, February 13th the Cincinatti Bengals and Los Angeles Rams take the field amidst a nationwide sigh of relief that Tom Brady isn't participating this year. For the best Super Bowl parties, events, and places to watch, read below. Enjoy the game, and may the best team win!
- 1103 N. Federal Hwy, Pompano Beach, FL 33062
- Event Begins @ 5:30 PM
- Cover Charge: $34.95
Just to the south in northern Broward County lies Pompano Beach, a city we do plenty of work in, especially with so much New Construction happening in the newly revamped beachfront. The cover charge gets you entry to this otherwise casual yet eclectic American-fare restaurant, remodeled and revamped for the Super Bowl. Galuppi's will feature an endless buffet of game day bites, desserts, and light entrees, a massive jumbotron, raffles, and so much more. Just a quick jaunt from Boca Raton. A visit to Galuppi's might be well worth your Sunday!
With 2021 in the rearview mirror and the heaviest throes of the pandemic seemingly behind us, the world is looking to travel once more. While Florida and Boca Raton by extension have remained a beacon of light for those relocating to South Florida or seeking a more resilient community free of lockdowns, it hasn't been all sunshine and roses (ok, maybe it's been close). Bloomberg.com has done an excellent job with their travel blog, identifying 24 other destinations alongside Boca Raton real estate as the places to go in 2022. For our part, we've assembled a few more reasons to join us here in Boca Raton, whether for a quick jaunt, or a lifetime!
We can't call them experts unless they've stayed a week (or three) in our beautiful sunny home, but we're eager to see what their travel team had to say about Boca Raton. Their claim: Boca Raton is suddenly more than a retirement hovel, offering more options for young people to "join their grandparents."
The outsider perspective maybe that Boca Raton is still a retiree-dominated landscape, but their claim that Boca Raton is slowly morphing into an extension of Miami's vibrancy is well-founded. More than just golf courses, country clubs, and high-end shopping, Boca Raton offers more budget-friendly gastropubs, youth attractions, and nightlife in districts like Mizner Park. Furthermore, the meteoric rise of FAU's student population to nearly 40,000 students has led more young people to seek housing closer to the water at spots like ...
Boca Raton is truly a centrifuge for all things, classy, festive, and exciting. Beyond the borders of our beautiful oceanside city are a great many opportunities to enjoy the vibrancy of South Florida. From family-friendly events, concerts, nightlife, and charity drives, there are always things to do in Boca Raton (and nearby). Here are a few of the many ways our community will gather this January. Get out your calendar and read on! There might just be something special in store for you.

For Realtors, we expect a year of booming markets, a major movement, and continued prosperity. For the rest of us, there's plenty to be pumped for as well.

What's better than the holidays? For family, we come together and share our love for one another. For singles, it's cuffing season. For charities, it's giving season. We simply can't get enough of the joy, cheer, and goodwill that this time of year seems to bring. Perhaps the only thing better than the holidays, are the holidays planned properly. We all have memories of the holiday cliches: missed flights, dad's standing with their arms crossed and an open trash bag ready for gift wrap, the neurotic planning that goes around dinner, and even the ridiculous Black Friday bonanza. Simply put, Santa makes a list, checks it twice, and so should you before you come.

Christmas With The Cranks...
Boca Raton can't claim to fit the traditional holiday vibe: peppermint candies, snow-swept meadows and towering coniferous forests. However, what our city lacks in North Pole energy, we make up for in every which way. It's days like these that the weather politely reminds us of the many reasons people move to Boca Raton. Learn more about the upcoming December events as we turn our calendar and ready ourselves for a riveting holiday season!
- Saturday, December 4th. 11 AM - 5 PM
- Mizner Park Ampitheater - 590 Plaza Real, Boca Raton, FL
The Palm Beach Vegfest saw its nascent stages take place further north in Palm Beach proper, with today's iteration perfectly suited for the vaunted Mizner Park Ampitheater space. The VegFest is part trade show, part food festival, with vegan food trucks, product presentations, and even live games and performances. Far from exclusionary, the founders of the event encourage all to attend, especially non-vegans. The exposure means the world to these small, cruelty free businesses, and the event if FREE to attend!
We'd be lying if we weren't a little excited for the end of this work day and the moments ahead with our friends and family. Thanksgiving is the ultimate opportunity to take a much needed break while the holidays ramp up, and the antecedent to when the holidays truly begin. We think its a sin to watch our local craft store skip straight from pumpkins to peppermint. In honor of Thanksgiving and the many special people we have to thank, the Champagne & Parisi Team has assembled our official (way too short) gratitute list. We wish we had the words to thank everyone, but we'll start with these amazing contributors to our tremendous 2021. THANK YOU!
We wouldn't be a real estate brokerage without our team of 100 agents - all of whom are family to us. In our years of service to our community, we've seen our fair share of Realtors come and go. We couldn't be more thrilled with this team of hardworking, intelligent, and perhaps most importantly, compassionate Realtors we've assembled through the years. Our team looks out for each other as much as they do for our clients, and the success we've built upon shows both...
